Personal Health Systems and Pervasive Mobile Monitoring is about the development of technologies focusing on innovative services to empower individuals in well-being and disease prevention, and chronic disease management.
Personalized healthcare emphasizes on the use of information about an individual/patient to select or optimize patient's preventative, therapeutic care and wellbeing. Modern personalized healthcare solutions include smart medical sensors, remote monitoring, smart-phone enabled data aggregation, medical awareness and analysis, and context-aware assistive living technologies.
Pervasive mobile monitoring systems, supported by information and communication technologies, provide solutions for improving illness prevention, facilitating chronic disease management, empowering patients, and enabling personalization of care improving the productivity of healthcare provisioning.Smart ubiquitous intelligent health systems and un-obstructive ubiquitous acquisition, transmission and interpretation of different bio-signals from fixed or mobile locations focus on the creation of innovative multi-purpose heterogeneous networking infrastructures providing in-transit persistent information storage for personal health systems’ and monitoring environment services able to overcome current network instabilities and incompatibilities.
In this context we invite researchers, physicians, computer scientists and engineers to present their experience and research work.
